Sump Memorial Library and the La Vista Public Library were among several Nebraska libraries to receive accreditation through the Nebraska Library Commission.

Public libraries in the state are accredited for a three-year period, with this accreditation running through Sept. 30, 2018. Accredited libraries work toward achieving the vision of giving improved access to enhanced library and information services, provided and facilitated by qualified library personnel, boards and supporters with the necessary knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes.

“We are dedicated to helping Nebraska libraries meet Nebraskans’ information needs, opening up the world of information for citizens of all ages,” said Richard Miller, Nebraska Library Commission library development director. “The Library Commission continues to work in partnership with Nebraska libraries and the regional library systems, using the Public Library Accreditation program to help public libraries grow and develop.”
